Birmingham Eastside blog brings news that the new £150m BIAD plans/models are to go on show to the public…

“An exhibition of the proposals will be open at Millennium Point on Friday, May 30 from 12.30pm-5.30pm, and on Saturday, 31 May from 9.30am-12.30pm.”

The timing of which seems a bit off. You might have thought they’d have had it open by Thursday evening for the Creative Network attendees to look at.

There is also a more precise indication of the timing of the opening date. What was previously said to be 2010 has now become “Sept 2012”, and even then that’s only the first phase (BIAD without the Conservatoire)…

“The first phase of the building is expected to open to students in September 2012.”
